TEI Comments on Proposed Amendments to Georgia's Direct Pay Permit Regulation

On March 1, 2016, TEI submitted a letter to the Georgia Department of Revenue commenting on the Department's proposed amendments to Rule 560-12-1-.16, Georgia's "Direct Pay Reporting" regulation. TEI urged the Department to remove the provisions denying direct pay permit holders their statutory right to interest on refunds, as the proposed amendment conflicts with Georgia law and principles of sound tax policy.

TEI's letter was prepared under the aegis of TEI's State and Local Tax Committee, whose chair is Jamie Fenwick. TEI Tax Counsel Pilar Mata coordinated the preparation of the letter and was its principal author.
